This collection of verses, made by one of the leading scholar-monks in Sri Lanka in the 20th century, is one of the most useful compiliations on the moral life of the layman that can be found. Drawn mainly from the great verses collections in the Pāḷi Nikāyas almost all aspects of the lay life have been covered, and it brings together in a fairly comprehensive way many teachings that would otherwise be lost in obscurity...

The Jatakamala or Garland of Birth Stories by Aryasura retells in Classical Sanskrit 34 of the Buddha's previous lives, illustrating the virtues he pursued during the time he was striving in previous births before attaining Awakening. The text was beautifully translated by the Dutch scholar J S Speyer and published in 1895 as the first book in the Sacred Books of the Buddhists series. Here it is read in by Anandajoti Bhikkhu, who has also made the text available on the Ancient Buddhist Texts...

Lo Weda Sangarawa was composed by Ven. Vīdāgama Maitreya Mahathera in the 15th century. This venerable poet flourished during the Kotte period of Sri Lankan history, which saw a revival of Sinhala literature, and is the best known among his literary works, both for its remarkable poetic excellence and the vast impact it has made on the lives of the Buddhists ever since it was composed. Couched in the classical Sinhala metre abounding in alliteration, the poem is a perfect blend of sound and...

It tells the story of the Kings of Sri Lanka, and the establishment of Buddhism in that country, and the support and challenges the religion has received down the ages. What is little known to the general public is that there is a secondary version of the text, which its editor chose to call the Extended Mahāvaṁsa. This text is almost twice as long...

The earliest recorded discourses of the Buddha are found in narratives detailing his early career, not long after the Awakening. We have three main sources for a record of this period, they are the Lalitavistara, the Mahākhandhaka, and the Mahāvastu, which apparently formed the substance of the Vinaya of the Lokottaravāda sect. Embedded into these narratives there are certain teachings, which now form the earliest recorded discourses of the Buddha, and it is those that are presented here.

Ven. Bodhicitta gave the first of these talks on International Bhikkhuni Day, September 29th, 2012 at the Vivekavana Buddhist Society in Penang, Malaysia. The rest of the talks were given in the following weeks as she elaborated on the subject, and explained it in a methodical way. The talks discuss the worthy aims a Buddhist should have, the various realms one can be born into, how one gets to them, and encourages everyone to strive for Awakening, rather than rebirth.
